No: Or at least there are no case reports of anyone doing it. I have had patients who smoked 5 packs a day, which is essentially a cigarette every 10 minutes while awake. Most people who smoke that many are really not taking in all the tobacco smoke. Rapid smoking actually produces so much nausea/vomiting in most people that it was recommended as a cessation strategy.
